US Figure Skating announced a revised Mask Policy on July 30, 2021 in response to the new Delta variant of COVID-19 currently circulating in the United States. The new safety protocols go into effect today, August 2, 2021. You may read their entire statement here.
US Figure Skating has stated that they will require athletes and attendees of USFS sanctioned activities to mask up while inside buildings regardless of vaccination status. Athletes may go without a mask while on the ice and while outside warming up.
Atlanta Figure Skating Club requests that our skaters and patrons take appropriate precautions and ask that you consider following USFSA’s new COVID-19 protocols while skating at The Cooler. We have many young and at risk families and skaters that are part of our skating community that we would like to keep safe.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
It was great to see so many competitors and we’re grateful to the families (and chaperones) and the Coaches who dedicate so much of their time to support the skaters and the sport of Figure Skating as a whole.
We also owe a debt of thanks to our many volunteers, the Referee, Judges, Technical Panel and Accountants, the Rink Operations team at The Cooler, our Officials and the whole of the Local Organizing Committee all of whom gave generously of their time and without whom the event simply would not have happened. We cannot thank you enough for your contributions. 💕
